    Pros

    It really is a great company to work for. Advancement within is totally obtainable. It only took me 3 year to go from part time at minimum wage to running my own store. They care about their employees and take notice to ones that strive to move up within the company

    Cons

    Sometimes there are some expectations that seem out of reach but only because it takes the team as a whole to reach

    Advice to Management

    District managers and up; if you were ever working in a store please don't be so hard to expect result overnight and forget you were once in the same position that we are.

    I have been working at AutoZone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Upper management is very concerned with the autozoner. Very helpful and caring. Plenty room for growth long as you put in the work.

    Cons

    I don't have many complaints, however I feel like some people get promoted out of desperation, this watering down our brand in some cases.

    Advice to Management

    We need to increase training opportunities so that Zoners are more ready made step up into protons instead of them learn on the fly.
